January 2 players “Bordeaux” flew out of the French Cup, losing big on the road to Brest (0: 3). In Ligue 1, the Girondins also have nothing to boast of – 17th position in the rating and a minimal advantage over the direct relegation zone.
Before a short pause, Vladimir Petkovich’s squad suffered their eighth defeat in Ligue 1, losing at home to Lille (2: 3). At the same time, the team did not solve the problems with the defense, which concedes the most – 43 goals.
“Marseilles”, unlike his upcoming rival, successfully performed in the French Cup. The southerners easily passed the Chauvigny club (3: 0) thanks to goals from Milik, Under and Harit. Also, Jorge Sampaoli’s team shows itself well in the championship, where it holds the third line with a conditional lag behind the second Nice, and in the previous round Marseille escaped defeat in the home game against Reims (1: 1).
Bordeaux have won only one victory in 10 home games in Ligue 1 – four draws and five defeats… But “Marseille” scored 17 of 33 points in away matches, where the southerners won five wins and two drawsby allowing only one defeat.
Therefore, in this match betting on the success of the guests looks interesting. Bookmakers offer to bet on P2 with odds 1.75, draw goes for 4.38, and P1 can be played at the quote 4.64…
In addition to the general successes and the current form in favor of “Marseille” are also the results of the previous teams between teams. In them southerners did not concede to an opponent in five matches in a row – two wins and three draws. The bookmakers offer to play a zero handicap for the guests of this meeting with a coefficient 1.32…
Bordeaux have the most passing defense in Ligue 1. At the same time, Petkovic’s team has no problems with goals scored – 30 goals in 19 played rounds.
It’s also worth noting that teams have scored at least two goals in three of the past five head-to-head matches. Therefore, in total it is worth considering the TB option (2.5) for 1.71…
Forecast and rate
In this match I decided to bet on the exchange of goals – odds 1.67… Bordeaux need to improve their standings, so I expect the hosts to play with an aim to attack. In addition, the “Girondins” ensured the passage of this bet in the last 10 matches of the French championship, and “Marseille” were distinguished by effective strikes in the last six trips in all tournaments.
